Our friends over at ShakeStir have asked the nearly 2,000 (and growing) bartenders in their community to submit signature cocktail recipes for potential coverage on The Daily Meal. Each Wednesday, the drink that snags the most 5-star ratings (according to his or her ShakeStir peers) will be featured on The Daily Meal — along with a recipe, photo, and link to the selected bartender's profile — as part of the new weekly "Hump Day" Cocktail series.
This week's cocktail takes a tune out of The Beatles' songbook: the Strawberry Fields cocktail celebrates the last few days of strawberry season with vodka and crème de fraise. It's made by London bartender Phil Yates.
Thanks to our bartender friends at ShakeStir for contributing, and stay tuned for more Hump Day Cocktails!
